To whom it may concern:

As my resume indicates, I have experience as the Director of Nursing in a Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitative Center, experience as an RN Manager and Consulting Nurse for an Assisted Living Corporation, Case Manager for a Home Health Agency and as the Charge Nurse for a Skilled Nursing Facility. I am sure you are aware of the flexibility, focus, and professionalism these positions require. I want to bring the knowledge and insight gained through these various experiences to Wausau Manor.

I have much to offer in the way of diversity of experience and profession in that I have worked in 3 different areas of Health Care. I have worked in Home Health, Assisted Living, and currently in Long Term Care. I have had the opportunity to learn Human Resources policies and procedures and enforce them ethically without liability. From my work in LTC and Home Health I have sharpened my assessment skills with attention to detail and Medicare/Medicaid standards. In my current job at Stevens Point Care Center, I have learned to perform my job with professionalism, authority and dedication. Combine all of my acquired experience with my natural talent, and you have someone that you would be proud to have on your staff.

Finally, in all the previous positions I have held, I have approached them as opportunities for career advancement and discovery. I will bring the same spirit and value added vision to your company.
It is my sincere hope that we will meet for an interview to discuss any questions you may have and a future for me at Wausau Manor.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Very truly yours,

Heather Lavoie RN
